Re: Moving to DE and Would Like to Teach There

    That sounds good too. However, I have no knowledge on southern
    Chester County or Cecil Public School district in Maryland. Can
    you give me a "heads up" or a link to where I can start my
    search for info? If not, I'll start asking around and try to
    find something on the internet. You know, whenever I hear the
    word "Chester" the city of Chester immediately comes to mind
    and I wouldn't want to teach there because of its bad
    reputation and all the troubles it seems to have. I'm very
    grateful that I have a teaching position, considering all the
    stories I read on the PA teachers' website, but I'd love to
    work close to home if I could.

    Have a great school year.
